Netcraft toolbar

Netcraft have released a toolbar that helps stop phishing attempts, it apparently provides information about where the site you’re on is hosted and more, looks very useful tool.

I say it apparently provides information, as I’m not willing to actually test it, because sensibly when I try to install it, IE6 tells me not to, warning about security inconsistencies. Looking at it’s because the MSI download is sent with a mime-type of text/plain. Along with the warning, IE actually renders the file as plain text, something that long ago IE got terribly wrong, good to see that it’s beginning to get better.

Netcraft, maybe testing your site in an up to date IE6 with Windows XP SP2 would be a good idea before releasing it? Maybe I’ll try again later once it’s fixed.
